My only diving trip to Belize was aboard the Belize Aggressor III out of Belize City. This was my first time diving on an Aggressor & Dancer Fleet liveaboard (Aggressor & Dancer Fleet) and it was a great experience. I like diving from a really quality liveaboard for both convenience and accessibility to more distant dive sites. I found the crew to be extremely helpful and accommodating. The famous Blue Hole draws many divers to Belize to see the underwater stalactites in this world’s largest blue hole, but there are many other fantastic dive sites in the Belizean waters. Many of these top dive sites include dives off of the Turneffe Islands and Half Moon Caye. Dive sites were very flexible in terms of what our diving group wanted to explore and see. During our week on the Belize Aggressor III, many of us took the opportunity to get nitrox certified.
Plan to arrive in Belize City a few days early or leave a few days later as I highly recommend taking some of the land tours. One should definitely see at least one of the Mayan ruins in the area: Altun Ha, Caracol, Lamanai, or Xunantunich. City tours, river cruises through the jungle, cave tubing, and zip lining over the jungle canopy are all top attractions and a fun way to experience Belize. All tours will pick you up and drop you off at your hotel. We stayed at the Radisson Ft. George Hotel – Radisson Ft. George Hotel. This is very convenient for boarding and departing from the Belize Aggressor III docks at the Radisson Ft. George dock in Belize City.
